Finger paints are often the first experience a child has applying color to paper, before the development of manual dexterity, which enables a child to hold a paint brush. These finger paints use food-safe, non-GMO ingredients (including potatoes, rice, and beans) to provide an all-natural, fun-filled, and colorful adventure for the very youngest artists. The set comes with four paints: blueberry blue, cabbage green, watermelon red, and orange . . . well orange! Made in the United States.

Materials: Organic fruit and vegetable extracts
Directions: Mix the powdered finger paint base with an equal amount of water to create a silky smooth liquid paint. Mix only what is needed for a single use, though excess unused liquid paint can be safely stored covered in the refrigerator for a day or two.
